Maggots in Food?

Answer

Food will often be infested with maggots if it is left out too long. Flies will lay their eggs in the food which hatch into maggots a few days later. The food should be discarded as quickly as possible to eliminate the breeding area as well as future generations waiting to emerge. Flies are a type of pest which feed on old, decaying food in trash cans or dumpsters. By keeping one's home clean and frequently throwing out trash, maggots can easily be avoided.
